LOGLINE:Pianist Ray Luck performs for the Waiwai Amerindians.
DIRECTED BY: Christopher LairdDocumentary | Trinidad & Tobago | 2002 | 25 mins | English |
In November 2000, British explorer John Blashford Snell, wishing to fulfill the desire of the Waiwai people for a keyboard instrument, transported a grand piano to their village deep in the rainforest of Guyana. Since then, the piano has remained largely unused in a corner of the village church. In May 2002, Guyanese filmmaker and cultural activist, Michael Gilkes led a team, which included acclaimed concert pianist Ray Luck, piano technician Remington Ally and the Banyan crew, to join the Waiwai in a concert of song and music.
